All hands and feet require regular maintenance, except for permacured toes and the Hamburger Helper glove, which is immortal. Take care of what you actually have with today's Groupon to Nails by Stephanie at Lather Salon & Spa, located in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get a basic mani-pedi (a $75 value).
- For $60, you get a Shellac no-chip mani-pedi (a $125 value).
Stephanie treats each keratin square she encounters with utmost care. Her two-hour mani-pedis are like facials for limb fringe, kicking off with an exfoliating scrub that's slathered over the hands and forearms and massaged into tense muscles with the help of essential oils. Towels then wick away the granules to reveal fresh-looking skin and rejuvenated Muppet tattoos, and the application of a heavy moisturizer makes dermises as dewy as a lily pad fogged with frog breath. Foot-focused pampering follows, and Stephanie's pedicure process is waterless to eliminate cross contamination, bacterial infections, and aquaphobic meltdowns. Heels and toes are sloughed smooth of calluses, moisturized, filed, and then wrapped in warm towels to steam and detoxify. Finally, a fresh coat of rainbow is applied to kempt claws in the color of the client's choice.
Phalange canvases can be transformed into works of miniature art by opting for a painting of the powerful gel-and-polish mutant, CND Shellac. Though it goes on like standard nail polish, Shellac is a high-mileage material that stays put for up to two weeks, takes no time to dry, resists chipping and smudging, and can be removed in just 10 minutes if fickle hands decide their favorite color is no longer 1950s red, but instead 1990s puce.
